          .....unfortunately! Check in was very unwelcoming since the front desk staff was busy on the phone. The room was OK but nothing to rave about. Breakfast was more than uneventful. Even the tea wasn't good. Service was "not in the mood" to say the least....More

          We stayed at the Bunratty Castle Hotel on the first first day/night of our Ireland vacation. Close to Shannon Airport and directly across the street from Bunratty Castle. It was clean and comfortable, but could use some cosmetic updates. Breakfast was so-so.

          As a protocol and etiquette professional I will be visiting this area and looking at staying at the Castle Hotel and going to the Castle for the Dinner. I will be reviewing and hopefully recommending this hotel and the castle dinner to our international Protocol Association. I see that the comments range across the spectrum on this hotel (loved there website but would like to have seen a place for reviews - or I missed it), had to go to trip advisor for comments. I know some guest may have a minor problem that becomes a major issue when they write a review, so I try and keep an open mind, read between the lines and ask for honest feedback as if I was recommending to my grandmother. Would like some good recent feed back on the hotel, room, castle dinner, breakfast and things to do (sites, pubs, restaurants). Any suggestions greatly appreciated I do post after I stay at a location and give a very detail description and recommendation (good or bad)

          Would like information on transportation from airport to the hotel and back to airport. Is there a public bus that runs from the airport and stops at the hotel or nearby? Is breakfast included in all room reservations?
